Sly and The Family Stone - Fillmore East 1968

Reloaded 10/May/2015 - This is   Sly and The Family Stone  The band formed in 1966, and by the time of these concerts in 1968, were highly regarded following their ground breaking hit 'Dance To The Music'. Active from 1966 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of soul, funk, and psychedelic music, they attracted a multi national following from Soul fans to Rock fans. Headed by Sly Stone, and containing several of his family members and friends, the band was the first major American rock (soul, funk, psychedelic...) band to have an integrated lineup in both race and gender. Oh, and the hair kinda grew longer and wider and taller after the release of 'dance to the music'. This then is Sly and The family Stone, still in the ascendancy, on the 5th October 1968, at the Fillmore East in New York City. The recordings are of both Early and Late show. Early Show: 1. Life 2. Color Me True 3. It Wont Be Long 4. Are You Ready 5. Dance To The Music - Musi
